CNY STEM Scholarship Program
January 19: 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Partners for Education & Business, Inc. (PEB), an affiliate of MACNY, has announced a record year for local employer-sponsored scholarships. Regional high school students can now apply for four-year college scholarships in Architecture, Automation Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Nursing, Process Engineering, and Software Engineering.
The CNY STEM Scholarship Program, endorsed by the CNY Tech Sector and the CNY STEM Hub, was launched in 2013 and is open to high school seniors intending to major in the areas listed above. Residents of Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, and Tompkins counties are eligible to apply. This year multiple scholarships are being offered by eight local companies: Cooper Lighting Solutions; INFICON; King+King Architects; Loretto; Novelis; SRC; Marquardt; and TTM Technologies.
Marianne Ferris, the coordinator for the program, said, “The scholarships continue to evolve because of the commitment from local employers to find this region’s best and brightest, assist with their educational expenses, and ultimately offer them internships and full-time positions right here in Central New York.”
Over the past nine years, PEB has awarded 65 scholarships with a total value of $706,000. This year, PEB is adding a record 14 more scholarships with an additional value of $128,000.
The deadline for applications is March 1, 2022. The process includes independent reviews of the applications, academic records, letters of recommendation, a listing of honors and/or awards, extracurricular activities, an essay, and personal interview.
